Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: If you can’t tell already from reading through this review, Pandora Tomorrow is an incredible game and the best overall Xbox title I’ve played this year. Coming from someone that gave Ninja Gaiden a 9.6, that’s saying something. Every single aspect of the original game has been improved upon: the story, the interface, the gameplay, visuals, so on and so on.
Excerpt: The sequel to the smash hit Splinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow has potential of ripping open the competition in 2004…well, maybe not Halo 2, but every other game. Splinter Cell made a huge debut hushing those Metal Gear fanboys who thought the game would be a rip-off. Now, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow is taking a big step forward adding online capabilities, and much, much, more.
Summary: Taking stealth-action to the next level, Tom
Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow from Ubisoft on the Xbox takes players
deeper undercover than ever before. Pandora Tomorrow enhances the original
game's amazing graphics with even more real-world detail with amazing
light-sourcing and shadow effects evident throughout with new techniques that
make the gameplay even more realistic.
Excerpt: Stealth is a word guaranteed to strike fear into the hearts of all but the most unseasoned gamers. In recent times it has been transformed from an innovative and welcome feature into part of the dreaded 'tick this box' formula; a huge melting pot of genre specifics used by Developers anxious to cover each and every base.
Excerpt: Upon catching a glimpse of the first beautifully rendered setting -- the ocean crushing up against the beach, the dock creaking with your every tiptoe, grass rustling with each brush-by -- you'll be intrigued. After you pick your first lock, you'll be thoroughly enthused. But it's not until you engage in shadow games with the very first terrorist -- sneaking from dark blotch to darker shadow -- that you'll be insatiably enthralled.
Excerpt: Sam Fisher, one of the most beloved characters on the Xbox, has returned to provide more stealth fun. This time, not only do we get a single player game with some more very tough missions to complete, Ubi Soft has also thrown in an awesome new multiplayer mode that is so good, it could have been sold separately.
Excerpt: Pandora Tomorrow , on the other hand, might as well be a different game. It's a textbook example of how to do a sequel right : keep what worked, jettison what didn't, and streamline the rest. A lot of the time, a sequel winds up feeling more like an expansion pack than a new game in its own right, and such is not the case here.
The original Splinter Cell never really impressed me much. I couldn't tell you exactly why, either, I just wasn't a big fan.
